It was a short but memorable time! Amazing what can happen in a couple of hours. Would you believe I bought an RV.....?
Naw -- didn’t think so. I know better than that. Actually I wasn’t really tempted, but one of the of the things I wanted to do was to see what was new and maybe find something that might fit our needs down the road. I think we are currently looking at a trailer to pull behind our F-150.
I took a quick look at a couple of other ones but was anxious to see what was going on inside.
Next I went inside paid my $9.00 ($1 off for a military discount) and set out looking around. I’ve done this more times than I can count and wandered up and down a few aisles looking at things. Nothing in particular sparked any excitement.
I see more and more tiny RVs that are very small which have a basic double bed and that is about it. I don’t quite get it. Looks to me like an expensive hard shell / tent type of a deal. But I guess they must be selling or they would not be making them. There are all kinds of ways to do the RV thing.
RV shows are also great places to see the unusual and find some interesting items. I signed up for a chance to win $100 and $500 at a few places knowing I can ‘Unsubscribe’ pretty quickly. I passed a tent arrangement on the back bed of a Ford F-150 and had a nice chat with the sales person there. Plus I picked up a nice roll-up throw blanket I can put in my truck.
After about an hour or so I made my way along the back wall and talked with some more vendors. One handed me some personal products and talked about reducing chemicals on the planet. Reminded me of Norwex products. Our daughter Kelly and good friend Hillary sells those products.
The booth belonged to Dana McKee with whom I talked for a few minutes. Turns out she is
advocating for safer laws in DC to get safer personal care products on the market. Her website is
As we talked, I found out she is also a John Maxwell certified speaker.
After that, I found some items for the boys and headed home. I scored pretty well with the boys who tried on some sunglasses I picked up.
It was fun to go to the RV show and I met some interesting people and got some good ideas for our next RV. It was time well spent!
Thanks for joining u on the Roadrunner Chronicles! In the next edition, we’ll finished up with Part 3 on how we sold the Roadrunner...
